Delhi Capitals v Kolkata Knight Riders – Betting Tips and Predictions
Here are more cricket betting tips and match predictions. Our experts give you good advice about some of the best odds available.
Bet on Dhawan for Top Delhi Batsman
Shikhar Dhawan is vital to Delhi’s push for quick, early runs at the top of the order. He has been in good form and has a point to prove after being left out of India’s T20 World Cup squad.
As a left-hander, he can be particularly tricky for the bowlers. He hits the ball to relatively unusual parts of the field, which can be tough to place a field for.
Bet on Dhawan to be Delhi’s top batsman in this match at 3.4 with bet365. It’s a promising option, but be sure to check out the others in the same market, too.
Pick Narine in an Accumulator
Sunil Narine wasn’t doing that well when the IPL 2021 restarted, but has certainly found his groove again. He was outstanding with bat and ball in the previous playoff against Bangalore.
Narine floats up and down the batting order and comes onto bowl at crucial periods in the innings. He has plenty of big match temperament.
We really like the look of his price of 5.45 with 1xBet to hit at least one six, take a catch and claim a wicket. This is among their most attractive accumulator outcomes.
Select Ferguson as top KKR bowler
Lockie Ferguson has been really good since joiningthe IPL. Kolkata have used the New Zealand fast bowler well.
He has some clever slower variations, which often succeed in conditions that need these sorts of changes in pace.
He was instrumental alongside Sunil Narine in removing RCB from the tournament. Ferguson could bring good value at 3.5 with Parimatch to be KKR’s top bowler in this match.
Jonhenry is a cricket nut. He has written about the game for several years and knows more about South African cricket - club cricket, in particular - than most. He has been published on most reputable cricket sites and, nowadays, devotes his knowledge of the global game to the iGaming industry. When he is not producing content about cricket, Jonhenry is playing, watching or coaching it. If not that, he's reading about the game or administrating his local cricket club.
